    Excellent people, team culture

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNasdaq has some fantastic dedicated people working hard and sincerely. It's a very team oriented culture and people tend to pull their weight. Yes, there is plenty of politics, but that is corporate life. Still, it's a great company working prominently on the world stage.

    ConsUnder-market compensation and slow forward career path. The company is also too lean and certain groups are stretched too thin.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A Great Place to Work, but Don't Get Too Attached!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsMy colleagues were undoubtedly the best in the industry....dedicated to the company, especially those who had survived acquisitions. Team work, low stress environment among the neighboring colleagues. Everyone collaborated and enjoyed their job, and were dedicated to the clients. Direct supervisors encouraged everyone and your input matters. Benefits and pay were great.

    ConsSenior management only seem to care about the bottom line, and seemed to love to let go of people who were in dedicated long-time service to the company. People who were creative, thought out of the box, and worked for their clients day and night were let go and replaced with people just out of college or other colleagues who were not with the company for very long. Clearly this was to save money. Don't get too comfortable, your days will be numbered! Outsourcing is also a favorite hobby of theirs....having cut out whole teams to outsource in other countries.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore appreciation for people with longevity would appreciated. They were there for a long time for a reason. Outsourcing should be a last resort. People were put down or terminated for being dedicated to their clients and always available, but its our dedication that sets us apart. Work on being a great company again..... newsflash, that includes KEEPING your talent, not replacing it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
